News: Jack in the Box - New Hella-peno Burger Plus Two New Ultimate Cheeseburgers

Jack in the Box adds the new Hella-peno Burger to their late night menu and two new Ultimate Cheeseburgers available all day.

The Hella-peno Burger features a beef patty, sliced jalapenos, cheese-filled jalapeno poppers, cheese sauce, and taco sauce on a sesame bun.

It's only available from 9 pm to 5 am and can be had in a Munchie Meal combo with two tacos, Halfsie fries (half regular, half seasoned curly), and a 20-ounce drink for $6 (may vary). You can also order it a la carte for about $4. According to the company, it's "there for you when you're hella-hungry and it's hella-late." (Hella- is a slang prefix normally associated with Northern California but usage has since spread to other areas. It's basically interchangeable with "really" as an adverb.)

The Ultimate Cheeseburger is now joined by two new, limited-time cohorts in the Jalapeno Ranch Ultimate Cheeseburger and the BBQ Ultimate Cheeseburger.

The Jalapeno Ranch Ultimate Cheeseburger comes with two beef patties, American cheese, Swiss-style cheese, sliced jalapenos, and ranch sauce on a sesame bun.

The BBQ Ultimate Cheeseburger consists of two beef patties, American cheese, Swiss-style cheese, barbecue sauce, and caramelized onions.

The suggested price for either burger is $3.89 (may vary). Jack in the Box has a "$1 off" coupon for the new Ultimate Cheeseburgers on their website.
